Abstract : The State of Colorado considered Fort Carson and its training and combat readiness activities major contributors to the noncompliant Total Suspended Particulate (TSP) levels of the San Isabel Air Quality Control Region (AQCR4). This study was performed to determine Fort Carson's effect on the TSP levels in the communities surrounding the installation, to identify and quantify significant TSP-producing activities on Fort Carson, and to recommend measures to control TSP. The results of the study demonstrated that Fort Carson had little or no effect on TSP concentrations in the surrounding communities.
